Governor Steve Beshear has proclaimed March 10-14, 2014, Environmental Health Professionals Week, in honor of the numerous registered sanitarians working across the state to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their fellow Kentuckians (click here to view the Governor’s Proclamation).
Environmental health professionals help ensure the safety of restaurants, grocery stores, supermarkets, food production facilities, schools, hotels, motels, mobile home parks, public swimming pools and tattoo businesses through routine health inspections. They also provide support for other health programs that target issues such as lead-based paint, septic systems, radon, milk, water, quality assurance, animal rabies and many more.
We are very excited to recognize the contributions made by our environmental health professionals to public health and to the citizens of Lexington.
The Public Health Environmental Health Team: Russell Cantrell, Skip Castleman, Jessica Cobb, Kevin Gabhart, Pam Hopkins, Jaime Lundblad, Ralph McCracken, Luke Mathis, Nathan Powell, Laura Sandusky, Barrett Schoeck, Joy Spencer, Kara Stanfield, Amy Sullivan, Christopher Washington, Danielle Wells, Ben White and Matthew Yarnall.
